The swift decline and present plight of India's wildlife make regular headlines. This book asks how we came to this point. Drawing on memoirs, archives and official records, Mahesh Rangarajan brings new insights to bear upon age-old encounters between human beings and the natural world in India. Chapters on the Ancient and Medieval periods sketch out India's early wildlife history. Nature's retreat against human onslaught over the past two centuries, and efforts to reverse that trend, are then addressed in greater detail. Mahesh Rangarajan has served as Corresponding Editor of the journal Environment and History. His books include Fencing the Forest (1996); the two-volume Oxford Anthology of Indian Wildlife (1999); and (as co-author) Towards Coexistence: People, Parks and Wildlife (2000). Printed Pages: 160 with 10 illustrations.
